    PARIS, 12 octobre (Reuters) - Lawyers for the only known 
survivor of a group of Islamist militants who killed 130 people 
in Paris last November said on Wednesday they would no longer 
defend him. 
    Salah Abdeslam, who has been held in solitary confinement 
near Paris since he was captured earlier this year, does not 
want to talk and no longer wants legal representation, his 
lawyers Frank Berton and Sven Mary said on BFM Television. 
    "We are convinced, and he told us so, that he will not talk 
and will use his right to remain silent. What can we do. I have 
said it from the beginning, if my client remains silent, I drop 
his defense," Berton said.  
    Berton said that Abdeslam was being "driven crazy" by the 
24-hours-a-day camera monitoring in his high-security jail.
